Duesseldorf/Munich — ARQIS has awarded Sankyo Tatey­ama, Inc. on the acqui­si­tion of the alumi­num foundry busi­ness of Aluwerk Hett­stedt GmbH (AWH), a manu­fac­tu­rer of alumi­num castings and extru­ded products, and the entire busi­ness of RMG Metall­fach­han­del GmbH (RMG), a distri­bu­tor of semi-finis­hed metal products. The parties have agreed not to disc­lose the purchase price.

AWH is a manu­fac­tu­rer of cast alumi­num billet and extru­si­ons, specia­li­zing in medium and hard alloy casting. RMG acts as AWH’s exclu­sive distri­bu­tion unit and is an inte­gral part of the over­all transaction.

With the acqui­si­tion of AWH and RMG, Sankyo Tatey­ama will enable its subsi­diary, ST Extru­ded Products Group (STEP‑G), to streng­then its supply capa­bi­li­ties for the auto­mo­tive, aero­space and rail sectors.
